Halloween $10 post day!

Postby Catspaw » Sun Oct 30, 2016 8:37 pm

Everyone,

Welcome to our annual $10 post day on October 31st. \:D/ Woohoo! This offer will last 24 hours only, so enjoy the money while it lasts! Please keep in mind that spam is still not allowed, and we will delete posts that are made merely for making money. For shame! :shame: Today is the last day of the current regime, so we might as well put them to work. ;)

All areas that you normally get money for posting in have been changed to $10, except the SBC forums. You still won't get money for HH posts. Nice try, guys! :noway:

Many thanks to bookworm for the reminder, as always! Our current stats are below, and I'll share the new stats 24 hours from now.

Have fun, and post away! \:D/

Some history for the newbies:
The first $10 Day was on Halloween of 2005 and wasn't originally planned to be an annual event, but then Shadowpaw decided to use it as an attempt to set a new user record and after its great success it was made a yearly tradition.

Ooh that's cool. I don't think I've ever posted on the ToO during Halloween. So this is most likely my first time. Thank you, bookworm, for the nice piece of history as well. What other holidays do y'all do this sort of thing with?

Oh money!

@Kaida: Well, this is kind of the opposite, but we usually turn money rewards off for Christmas (to encourage people to spend time with their family)

I think I remember that. I usually appear more often around Christmas time because of the activities here but I think I also don't come on the day of Christmas.

It's a pity that the value of characters hasn't been proportionately increased, to incentivize long, thoughtful posts. ;)

10$ for a post!? I will find things to say that are not spam!
How many of you are wearing costumes tonight? I am not too old for free candy and I am going as a ninja. Our friends the Harrises have a Reformation party and put the 95 Theses on the door of their house. They were mentioned on Wretched Radio for it!

I actually kinda forgot that this even happened every year. :P
^AIOluver^

Who am I? I'd rather not answer that question, the real question is, "Who are you?". Right now I am trying to think of something witty to put here.. I might not find anything, but that's fine. This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.

Money is definitely better than candy. :yes: Especially if it could buy me something off of the ToO.

I think this might be the first year that I actually showed up on the correct day to get money.

(Also, my plans for becoming an eternal council member of the ToO by default have been ruined. :boohoo:)

Thank you, Catspaw, for keeping this going another year. It was nice. I didn't participate much but it was still nice to see $10 and some after the few posts I made. =p
